This is lab 3 of 12 in the course
In this lab, students will derive forward kinematics equations for determining the the position of an end effector given angular position of bars of a five-bar linkage. They will then model this in LabVIEW, and validate the model using physical coordinate information from the Mechatronic Systems board. To develop the knowledge of these topics, students will review background information and perform in-lab exercises to learn essential skills. Required: Must complete previous labs before starting this lab.
